SmallRig Rotating NATO Handle (Left Side) 3260 is designed for easy adjustment of camera shooting angle. Ergonomically designed with a comfortable silicone surface texture, the handle is anti-slip and sweat-proof. It can be quickly mounted onto the side of the cage via a NATO clamp.

For different filming angles, you can press the unlock button on the side for easy 360-degree rotation and release it for automatic locking. The handle comes with 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 threaded holes and a cold shoe for easy attachment of accessories; it works with Hand Strap PAC2456, providing more options to further enhance the user's grip comfort.

It¡¯s better then I expected, very sturdy and good quality. Very nicely fits into your hand. Quite heavy but still worth it.
I've been using the Smallrig wooden handle, which is very comfortable. But as soon as I found out about this one I wanted to get it. The fact that it can rotate and offer you a comfortable grip in any recording angle makes it perfect.It takes a little time to get used to it since it's very easy to press the lock and loosing it making the camera move while recording. But once you learned it, it's easy as pie.
I am gong to start by saying that this handle holds up to the Smallrig name! It is made of solid material that feels strong. The ability to rotate the handle at a push of the button is awesome! I am constantly changing my hand position on my camera and this helps me keep my wrist straight which increases your ability to keep your camera steady. It is also a bit on the heavy side for a handle which I like. Adding a little extra weight to the camera helps with stability for handheld shooting. The one drawback that I see as a potential fail point is the rotating mechanism which is the very thing that makes this handle great. When it is locked out, it has a little back and forth play in it that I fear could break under pressure. I have used this handle a few times in a profession working environment and haven't had an issue with it yet. Just something to be aware of when buying a handle like this. If it does fail, I will update this review. If I do not have an update here, then the handle is still working and its good to go!
This handle is sturdy, stylish, and reliable. The only niche problem is that I use it on a a7siii and if I don¡¯t have an external monitor, the flip out screen can¡¯t fully open when using the handle. Other than that, it¡¯s perfect.

The handle itself is super comfortable to your hand and feels solid. Yet, I don't know why but I'm a little worried about how long will it last. Just beware, you can't switch sides as the other handles. You can put it on the right but it would be pointing back. So far I have use it just once. I'll update this review as I use it more.
This is a high quality product made out of aluminum and grippy rubber. The rotation function is excellent and allows you to quickly adjust your grip based on your recording position. The grip is good enough that you can hold your rig one handed from the side, for when you need to touch some buttons/dials on your camera which are not reachable with the right hand on the camera's grip. You need a nato rail on the side, but a lot of smallrig cages have those on the left side at least. I used to use a top handle, but after adding a monitor, the rig became too tall and top heavy, and I like a more compact rig with this handle on the left side, and the monitor in the hotshoe. I can still do low shots, because I can hold the camera with both arms extended down.
Very nice handle. Comes with nato rail. We'll packed. Easy to adjust. Really enjoy the feel. Hope Smallrig will do something similar with rec button.
Pretty sturdy construction and inclusion of nato rail is nice. Only issue is that the handle interferes with the headphone and mic ports on both the Mamaba and regular cage for the Canon R5. I can only use one port at a time without interference. The screw locations for this cage are really close to the ports which is causing the interference.
